    I'm really struggling with C3 (especially trig) and as half term is coming up I'm going to use it to really make an attempt to catch up a little bit.

    I'm struggling with HOW best to revise, should I focus on the questions in the edexcel book or should I just do exam questions? I need to brush up on trig especially, I'm struggling with it massively so surely I need to work on some practice before exam questions? Any advice please?

    The Edexcel book is brilliant!
    Work through every single question and look through the CD if you need help.
    Do past papers once you are confident with the content.
    - examsolutions is good if you are stuck on particular questions on past papers

    Focus on the textbook, go back over the knowledge, and work through all the questions in the chapter.

    For trig think : right what identities do I know, are there any hints in the question like a 2x going to x, which side looks more complicated, what can I substitute in etc.
